FURTHER, TRIUMPHS FOR 

ESPERANTO. 



18a Internaeia Kongreso held in Edinbugh is 1926. 



^HE BRITISH ASSOCIATION some years 
ago appointed a Committee to enquire into 
the practicability of an International Auxiliary 
Language. The committee published an interim 
report in 1921 recording its conclusions that an 

AUXILIARY INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE 

is practicable, that Latin and Existing National 
Languages are unsuitable, and that an "Artificial'' 
or Synthetic Language is best. 

Since that date the Committee have further 
considered the matter, and have how finally decided to 
recommend the Universal Adoption 0/ Esperanto. 

Realm of R a d i 0. 

At an International Radio Conference, 
held in Paris from 14th till 18th April, 1925, 
Esperanto was adopted as the hand-maiien 
of Radio throughout the whole world. It is now 
broadcast everywhere. 

Instruction, by well-known teachers, is regularly 
broadcast in both Hemispheres.

PREFACE TO 1926-27 EDITION. 



WE have again diligently collected and carefully- 
arranged the useful and up-to-date information 
regarding Buteshire — the Officials for the whole county 
and its individual parishes, and Householders and Busi- 
ness people in the more enterprising districts. 

Notwithstanding the continued very high prices, we 
have striven to maintain oar Directory as full as in pre- 
war times, and that without a corresponding advance of 
rates. With the continued support of former patrons, we, 
with patient industry, will continue in the way of well- 
doing. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, we, with prompt receipt of orders, will 
keep permanent this decided benefit. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; and we are particularly anxious 
that nothing of benefit to Buteshire is omitted, but that 
all interests have a good show, and everything brought 
thoroughly up to date. 

"It's an ill wind that blows nobody good." During 
the general depression owing to the industrial inactivity 
and strikes, we have been adding to, while revising, our 
increasing Lists of Officials. The virgin soil of Arran has 
alao received more attention — which, be hope, will be ap- 
preciated. 

Those who wish Lists of Householders (arranged in 
Streets and Wards) can get that in the Official Voters' Roll 
— in whole or in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and cai ef ul vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes.

This useful handbook of useful local information is again issued—for season 1924- 
1925. It is quite indispensible for those carrying on business in or with the county. 



The new edition of the Bute County Directory for 1924-25, published by Messrs 
Higgie & Co., Rothesay, maintains the reputation of the publication as a comprehen- 
sive record of activities and information of interest to the county. The directory 
comprises county and burghal information, lists of public officials and society office- 
bearers, agricultural and fishery statistics, and householders and traders. The calen- 
dar, with anniversaries for each date, is in reality a compact history of the county. —

As far as we can see, the information about Millport and Cuinbrae is quite cor- 
rect and thoroughly reliable, so we may take it for granted that the rest of the matter 
is the same. The book, which runs into 144 pp., should be extremely useful and con- 
venient for the residents of the county of islands, as well as to visitors, especially those 
who have business dealings with the inhabitants.— Largs and Millport News 

This useful publication is again to hand. The publishers have been so enter 
prising as regards its compilation that the Directory is now an absolute necessity to 
business people who have dealings with the picturesque County of Bute. It should be 
noted that the Directory also contains a useful almanac. — Ardrossan Herald,

LONG LIYE THE BUTE DIRECTORY 

The Opinions of the Press and the Acknowledgments of Libraries 
ar« as complimentary as ever. The " Glasgow Evening News " makes the following 
appreciation of " Local Colour. — The compilers of the Bute County Directory 
have an ingenious method of making up the local colour and stimulating local pride. 
Instead of filling up the Calendar with the stock anniversaries, they have put against 
each date a local happening." Thus — [Two events mentioned]. " It is certainly an 
idea that makes for ' atmosphere. ' "

*We heartily thank our Helensburgh friends. They themsehes also publish a use- 
ful directory for their town and environs, and they know what they are speaking about. 
Recently they said our publication was " a marvel of cheapness." Well, our pre-war 
price was only Is. Our secret is, because our pre-war vigour remains: long may it 
have cause to continue ! The directory is the only one provided with a loop for hang- 
ing in an open convenient place for reference, and not hid away in a desk or drawer — 
sometimes even in a safe (!) Our advertising friends will be pleased to learn that our 
free list is increasing. " Sweet are the uses of advertisement!'' [If we raised the 
price of our directory to 4s or 5s it would still sell, but the circulation would be very 
much curtailed. Our advertising patrons are well worth encouraging : without their 
assistance the cost would be nearer £4 or £b a copy. The greatest cost is in produc- 
ing the first copy: after that, the more the merrier. The size of the Directory is 
now double that of war time]. Advertising spaces now being let for next issue. 



COUNTY OF BUTE. 

rpHE COUNTY OF BUTE comprises the seven islands in the Firth of Clyde, viz 
-L — Bute, the most populous; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cumbraes, off the Ayrshire Coast; Hot.y Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
marnocic, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,51.0 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population, of the County (including its Burghs of Rothesay and 
Millpokt) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14.151; 1861, 16,331 ; 1881, 17,657. In 
1891 it was 18,248 (8,057 males and 10,197 females) ; and in 1901, 18,786 (8,412 
males and 10,374 females) — being an increase of 255 in the ten years — 2 - l per cent 
There were 4,270 inhabited houses in the islands. 
For 1911, the figures were as follows :— 

Males. Females. 
Arran - - - 2,169 2,402 

Bute (including Rothesay) 5,081 6,781 

Cum brae - - - 704 992 

*The increased total issued in the Quarterly Return of the Registrar- 
General compared with the returns lodged with the Sheriff-Clerk, 
may be accounted for by the enumeration of the shipping, 
the decreases since 1901 are as follows : Arran, 209; Bute, 330 ; Cumbrae, 62—601. 
The population at the postponed 1921 census [taken in June instead of April] for the 
county, was 33,711 (13,880 males and 19,831 females)— being an increase of 15,525 

over 1911.

Parish of North Bute. 

H^HIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-*- village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Bannockburn. 

At the 1921 census, (taken in June instead of April) the parish contained 1201 
males and 1529 females — total, 2730. 

For Number of voters on the roll, see County information.

SHORTHAND 

TYPEWRITING, 

ESPERANTO, - 

BOOK-KEEPING. 

MR HIGGIE'S CLASSES FOR PRACTICAL INSTRUC- 
TION are conducted during the two Winter Quarters — 
October till December and January till March. 

PRIVATE TUITION BY ARRANGEMENT. 
Shorthand continues to be taught with a view to its subsequent useful 
ness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
isation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto, — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie is in touch with import- 
ant regions all over the world, and regularly corresponds" with persons everywhere 
— notwithstanding their different national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be " Peace 
on earth and good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
" great tribulation" — caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindrance 
to peaceful re-construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones has been and is being repeatedly evidenced. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firm 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
'meek who shall inherit the earth." The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despots 
were beaten, but Righteousness is yet to be exalted, and frightfulness loathed. The 
longed-for League of Nations is evolving, when harmony and good-will shall yet reign 
in spite of all present discord and opposition— but not without many sacrifies, much 
service and suffering. Prosperity will not come through desiring something for no- 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good. 

Book-Keeping". — Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to- 
Date Business Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Pro- 
fession, and the ground-work and minutiae have long been familiar to Mr Higgie, a 
practical Printer. 

Messrs HIGGIE & COY.'S ESPERANTO PUBLICATIONS 
are known, read and appreciated throughout the whole civilised world. Many of the 
contribmtions are written by up-to-date foreigners.

The International Language— 

ESPERANTO 

— is an attempt to save the greatest amount of labour and open the 
widest fields of thought and action to the greatest number. 

I N TERNATIONAL CONGRESSES . 
The First International Congress toas held at Boulogne-sur-Mer, 1905, 

When the British and Foreign Esperantists met for the first time and wondered if they 
conld understand each other's speech as they had done their writing. To their mut- 
ual delight they found that they were no ionger foreigners but gealilandanoj 
(men alio womeninhabltants of other lands). If they did not sing "Auld Langsyne " 
thus early, they all felt that they were brethren "happy to meet, sorry to part," 
and all looked forward to the pleasure of meeting again. 

The Second was held at Geneva, in August, 1906, 

And the translated introductory pages of BONNIE SCOTLAND'S RESORTS had 
here the honour of being the first national guide-book printed in the international 
language, since known throughout the World as Belega Skotlando. 

The Third was held at Cambridge, August, 1907, 

When we printed and published a class book of typical Scottish Scenery, and 

about seventy ladies and gentlemen (representing eight nationalities) took a brief trip 
to Scotland, where they visited three places, viz., Edinburgh, Glasgow and Rothesay. 
They had a most pleasant and memorable holiday. By means of the Esperanto- 
letters they sang "Auld Langsyne " as Scotsmen sing it, and the words were ringing 
ing in their ears long after they arrived home. 

The Eleventh was to have been held at Edinburgh, in 1915, but 

The E eventh Tuta Mondo Esperanto Congress absorbed the Tuta Paciflca Kongreso, at 
San- Francisco, to commemorate the Opening of the Panama Canal. 

The Twelfth ivas held at the Hague, Holland, 1920. 
The Thirteenth at Prague, Czechoslovakia, August, 1921, 
The Fourteenth at Helsingfors, Finnland, August, 1922, 
The Fifttenth at Number g, Bavaria, August, 1923, 
The Sixteenth at Vienna, Austria, August, 1924, 
The Seventeenth at Geneva, August. 1925, and now 

Th* Eighteenth at Edinburgh, in July- August, 1926, 

to which Scotsmen prepared a hearty weleome to persons from other lands. 

NATIONAL CONGRESSES 
were continuous during the Great War. Stirling and Linlithgow 
were early in evidence as the rendezvous of Scottish Esperantists, 
and while we were busy with the annual issue of our Directory, the 
21st Annual Scottish Esperanto Congress was being held at Stir- 
ling in June. The British Esperanto Association, although it only 
passed its 17th Annual Congress at Whitsunday, 1926, is a larger 
and more vigorous institution than the Scottish. This June, the 
arrangements were advanced for the imminent Big International 
Event in Edinburgh. 

On the Continent the movement is much more advanced than 
here : the necessity is more apparent.

The Isle of Arran. 

THIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
the variety of its geological deposits. The island is 36 miles in length 
20 in hreadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
on the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their postponed Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed 
some very interesting sheep dog trials — which lengthened their stay 

(For Courts and Court Officials, Justices of the Peace, and County

CHIR M of the HEAT HER 

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
XjL hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and^their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing Joy Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 
priate . 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is a sample of the acknowledgments received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec. 
Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rolhesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saints 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, Jamks Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the ahove acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

Th« exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter, sample or parcel rates.

BEAD? FOE THE GOOD TIME COMING-. 

ESPERANTO. 

THIS highly commended, tested, living and very 
successful International Language has now got 
a firm hold on human life and work in every civi- 
lised country. 

Several attempts had been made by far-seeing 
and eminent persons in many lands — including Scot- 
land, — to surmount the lingual barriers, with the 
view of facilitating mutual intercourse and promoting 
peace and goodwill throughout the whole world, but 
none has triumphed except Esperanto — which does 
not seek to interfere with the working of other 
languages, but is just an easy method by which 
each person can communicate with all others who 
also desire perfect mutual understanding in regard 
to any subject. 

To enjoy this modern miracle it is but necessary 
to read (in any language desired) some of the won- 
derful testimonies of persons engaged in business, 
science or pleasure to learn of its immense benefits. 
To be without Esperanto is to he like those who 
prefer to work in obscurity, or the ships {if there 
are any outside canal boats) where the code of 
International Signals at Sea is ignored. 

Esperanto has come to stay, and, like the rain 
and sunshine, is for the benefit of everybody. 
N.B. — There still appears to be a belief in some quarters that 
this extraordinarily-useful language is only a fa»l of lingual 
enthusiasts (!) It has won admiration and success wherever 
adopted. Though "Belega Skotlando" and " Skotlanda 
Pejzago " are enjoyed throughout the civilized world, they 
are favourites among the hundreds of Esperanto groupoj in 
the British Isles and Empire, who delight in circulating the 
" key " language of universal peace and good -will.

VERY IMPORTANT SUBJECT 
TIME. Under the appropriate heading, 

"A Wasted Year, 

there appeared, on 3rd May, 1924, a Special Article in the 
Evening Citizen, Glasgow, showing that this is the time lost 
in the life of every child in Britain while acquiring the ir- 
regular and inconsistent spelling of our language. 

The Simplified Speling Society is promoting a 
petition to present to the Primo Minister, calling for the 
appointment of a Royal Commission — including Scholars, 
Teachers, Men of Letters and Men of Business — to consider 
the whole question, and report. 

Experiments already made by enthusiasts have proved 
eminently satisfactory, and shows how much valuable time 
will be saved for other studies by the removal of the speling 
incubus. 

The Speling Reformers include all classes of the people, 
and the question is not a party one. 

The Simplified Speling Society of Great Britain, and 
the Speling Reform Association of U. S. A., have issued 
the first number of a joint quarterly journal, " Speling."

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY ADVERTISEMENT. 



The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel ©f the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with Kothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated, 
but embraces the whole of the County of Bute — 
from the outlying districts of which more interest 
is respectfully solicited. 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff 
from pre-war issue, but that advance is not nearly 
equal to the increased cost of production : We de- 
sire not the curtailing of our information, but the 
■continuing of everythng as full as possible.

A real flower or leaf pu'd from the bosom of Bonnie Scotland is more 
appreciated among our kith and kin abroad than is comprehended by 
those who stay at home. It it was only known the enthusiasm such to- 
kens create abroad, they would be despatched with avidity along with 
' ' Bonnie Scotland's Resorts." 

ft will be obviously necessary, to avoid disappointment, to order early.

Dear Sirs, — -Thank you very much for sending me the assortment of ivy leaves 
which have been much admired. I showed them to several Scots on St Andrew's 
Day, and in each case the verdict has been the same. The leaves were considered 
a marvel. 

It may interest you to see my Year-Book, a copy of which I enclose. Please ac- 
cept with my best wishes. Believe me, yours faithfully, town 'nOTTf'T AS

Montreal, July 29th, 1913. 

"I was shown a copy of your publication,' Bon aie Scotland's Resorts,' 
while up country, and am desirous of possessing a few of those interest- 
ing books ; so realistically depicting places I have visited, and 'brither 
Scots. ' . Kindly inform me if such can be procured in this country or 
U.S.A., and, if so, where? I would not mind going 500 or 600 miles to 
get a few of your small books — so full of interest to the fellow Scotsmen 
I come in contact with here. . . The party who showed me their copy 
had it for years I shall be glad if you let me know if you issue other 
Publications along the same lines as the ABC' Resorts of Scotland.' " 

Messrs Higgie & Co., Rothesay. 

We are now preparing a post-war edition. 

These Publications are appreciated by intelligent persons outside 
Scottish connection, and we sent (free and direct) from our head 
office, in Rothesay, copies of Bonnie Scotland's Resorts, &o., 

to the Red Cross Hospitals in Scotland, 

giving a welcome to the brave Sailors and Soldiers who had been 
fighting in the Great War for Peace on Earth and Good Will to 
Men, and we received many thanks for our consideration. 

One never knows the good received in unexpected quarters. A 
Scottish soldier, while in an Egyptian hospital, "swapped" 
something with a fellow patient for a booklet on Pitman's Short- 
hand. He learned the art, introduced it into the British Army, 
and presided at the Glasgow celebration of the inventor's centen- 
ary - when he indicated the wonderful success of his innovation.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY 

This Directory n@w-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of past 
years. Tiie Bute Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent annual. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
fox them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for possible additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers. 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports 
and lists of office-bearei's, as information for the next 
issue 1 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland."

BUTE COUNTY DI HECTOR Y. 



The Commercial Library, 21 Miller Street, 
18th July, 1918. 
Messrs Higgie & Co., Publishers, Rothesay. 

We have to thank you for the copy of the Bute County Directory, addressed to 
the Stirling Library. Since November, 1916, all Directories have been transferred to 
The COMMERCIAL LIBRARY, 21 Miller Street. This library has been established 
for the use of business men, and. as since its opening, we have had over 49,000 risit- 
tors, more than one-third of whom consulted the Directories, you will appreciate the 
publicity your Directory obtains. 

Yours faithfully, 

Jno Phillips, Libraiian. 



This Directory came out regularly during the stren- 
ous years of the Great War. 

We are striving to keep the lists as full as ever during 
the present time ol industrial depression. Being optim- 
ists, we hope hope for the best. 

The Opinions of the Press on the latter issues are 
"es complimentary as formerly. 



The "cu canny" and similar anti-British tactics are paralysing progress and pre- 
venting prosperity. Unless there is a determined rivival oi 'Industry, what must 
the harvest be? It is not through the guile and covetous selfishness of the wicked 
and thoughtless, but through righteous Regeneration that peace, and prosperity 
will be regained. 

People are willing to spend money on Holidays as well as on Business, but the 
blight of strikes, love of idleness and dreams of getting something for nothing , are 
up in opposition. 

The Revival of the Touring" Season. 

The following sample enquiry letter was received after the War was over : — 

Sandown Station Road, Stechford, Birmingham, 12th June, 1919. 
Messrs Higgle & Co., ABC COAST GUIDE, &c. 
I shall be much obliged if you kindly send me names of any apartments you can 
recommend at Craigmore, Wemyss Bay, Millport, Craigendoran, and Tarber' * My 
Guide is 1904. Thanking you in anticipation, yours faithfully, Wm. T. Jonbs. 
♦Districts included in Thb Coast Guide. 
The above shows the Pleasures the public are again longing for but not engoying to 

the full because of the " ca' canny " polioy and the charm of living of the rates. 
The callous numbining of Busy Hives of Industry throughaut the country is ruinous. 
Chanty is a splendid virtue, but it should not not be allowed to encourage pauperism.

In China, for thousand? of years, it was only scholars who 
could read and write the language. Recently, a phonetic 
alphabet was evolved through the instrumentality of fo- 
reign missionaries. It is not based on the romanic letters— 
so well known in Western Europe, and adapted for the 
different languages in India, — Dut the innovation is so 
popular that people in the streets are learning to read and 
write in a marvelously short time.

More than Christians believe that la Homaro vivos kunfratare. 

THE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all races of Huramity on 
the Earth, and when we fell from the high estate in which we were create,! by 
our disobedience, Jesus Christ redeemed us, his Gospel of "peace on earth and good 
will to men'' is to be preached to every creature, and " the gates of hell shall not prevail 
against it." The confusion of tongues at Babel is being followed by the gift of the 
perfect language foretold by Zephaniah. The walls of Jericho fell before the sounding 
of the rams' horns at the command of Joshua, and the lingual walls, which have hither- 
to divided the nations, need no longer, through the genius of another Israelite, prevant 
"all people that on earth do dwell" — -whatever their creeds, colours or idiosyncrasies — • 
from satisfactorily communicating with each other by means of

Esperanto, like English, is made up from other languages : its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico. 

The llth Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1915, but the Grtat War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfer of the llth to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there, and a'l'uta 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreao developed into the 1 la Tut a Mondo Esperanto Kongrcsn. 
The 12th Kongreso Internacia was held at the Hague, Holland, in 1920; the 
13th at Prague, in 1921; the 14th at Helsingfors, Filmland, in 1922; the 15th at 
Niirnberg in 1923, the 16th at Vienna in 1924, the 17th at Geneva this August, and 
the 18th in Edinburgh in 1826 (when the Esperanto translation of the Bible was 
dedicated in St Giles' Cathedral), and the 19th will be in Danzig in 1927. 

Esperanto— the language of Peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cros« work and tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken up the study 
of la kava lingvo. It was used at the great international Jamboree in London, a 
meeting so happy and harmonious that it was appropriately closed by the singing of 
"Auld Langsyne. Annually there are several Esperanto international excursous. 
During the holidays a company of Scots boy scouts sojourned in Norway, anil a 
- company of Danes enjoyed the hospitality of Scotland, That is nothing compared 
with the achievements elsewhere. " We're a' John Tamson's bairns," 

Esperanto is much mote easily learned than the alphabets of some other languages 
and as it has no politics, religion, or physical force or selfish anns of anv natVui. but 
is pie-eminelitly pro bono publico, it is peculiarly fitted for cementing and iris lin : per- 
manent and happy the coming efficiency o*f the League of Nations. That oiganisa- 
ation has unanimously recommended the official and universal adoption of Esperanto* 
and it* teaching in the schools of all uyilhsed countries. 1226
